regular election some claim they called america's voting system as flawed as it relies on equipment which can easily be tumbled with lack of transparency and accountability as always in the polls. the u.s. a beacon of democracy and an example to be followed by the rest of the world devoted to one big source of pride is its fundamental concept of free and fair elections american elections are a disgrace it's like walking into the kitchen of a first class restaurant and losing or appetite at what you see because we have an election system a voting system that is completely nontransparent an opinion shared by many political experts and educators if you were here. in a magician suit who then went behind a curtain came out having first shredded the ballots to go you won would you trust that process and that process largely to blame is the outdated l tronic voting system in the states where all they have this electronic voting it could be
a real problem. if you don't have some other type of backup source to verify the vote count. it could be a problem read friedman is an independent award winning blogger who has covered the u.s. election system for years he calls the problem a pandemic and says. change is long overdue every single state in the union uses electronic voting a third of the voters this year will vote on one hundred percent on verifiable touch screen voting systems electronic voting systems. the rest of the country by and large will vote on paper ballots but those paper ballots are also counted by electronic systems unless you can see inside a computer there is no way to know if those computers tallied those ballots correctly several experiments conducted on electronic voting machines have proven that simple keystrokes and some knowledge of science and computers could flip results the circuitry inside the machine clears being created in numbers and insert
the correct numbers experts say the accuracy of the vote count even with people a trail is a myth in the ninety nine percent plus percent of the cases those ballots never see the light of day or never examined never reach out to basically american elections at this point have virtually zero claim on public confidence and which intimacy the rules and specific ations of how lections are held very locally and state by state four thousand different counties each of them use a different type of system a different type of voting system each of them have different flaws different vulnerabilities one particular company that makes electronic voting machines in the us has earned a dubious reputation for unverifiable results as records vanish into thin air i go to an a.t.m. and it's a debug machine i get a confirmation slip and i go around the corner to vote and i you know make my vote and there's no record deeble don't other voter machine production companies are also known to have strong partisan affiliations they are not accountable to any
voters. they are not just private but but private and extreme in their political sympathies democrats don't actually win that many elections to be precise democrats almost never win close elections and the trick therefore is to see to it that. a race is or looks close improving the election process in this digital age doesn't appear to be on anyone's agenda and putting barack obama's our president who won't talk ever about election fraud and denies that it has ever happened even when you know members of his own party have been the victims of it and while the number of reported flaws grows with each passing election over the past decade since two thousand when i think congress was pretending to want to make things better what has happened is things have gotten much much worse it appears stealing an election in the us maybe a candidates certain way to secure a win it's easy as one two three in this digital age of smartphones tablets and
